Submission Details

All abstracts must be submitted online

Please indicate the type of submission listed below.

All submissions must include a thematic area (as listed above) you feel best suits your submission, in addition to a title, author information, and abstract of no longer than 250words. Abstracts should generally describe the theme of the presentation, and where relevant, the methods and results.

Individual Paper Presentations

These presentations are intended for individuals to discuss work that has been completed, or where substantial progress has been made. Individual paper presentations are assigned to a panel with two or three other papers sharing a common theme (where possible).

Presentations about work that has NOT begun, or is only in the formative stage, are more suitable for a Roundtable Session.

You will need to submit:
Presenter name
Individual paper presentation title
Individual paper presentation abstract (maximum 250
words)

Note there are a limited number of panel sessions. In the case that the number of received papers and panel proposals exceeds the time available for presentations, the organising committee will review the submissions.

Authors are permitted to submit more than one paper and to appear in several sessions. However, the committee reserves the right to exclude second and third papers from authors in order to allow as many speakers as possible to present.

All individual paper submissions must be submitted by 30th April.
